Wiggle Your Left Shoulder

Lying on the uncomfortable divan at my house, with a copy Diana Gabaldon's book 'Dragonfly in Amber' on my side, I stared unflinchingly at my immobile left shoulder and commanded:

Wiggle your left shoulder !!

Not much response, though.

---------------------- Flashback -----------------------------------

After a fairly successful stint of skiing at the beginners' slope at one of the Pokonos ski resorts, I ventured onto the intermediate slope (the levels of difficulty at the ski resort were learners, beginners, intermediate, expert and advanced) with the confidence of at least a semblance of competence. Well, pride comes before a fall - literally, in this case. And all I have left is my non-wiggling shoulder to show for it.

---------------------- Back to the present -------------------------

Wiggle your left shoulder !!

Ugh-huh :(.
With a March vacation coming up, this is the last thing I need !! Some help puh-lease !! In all the ads, the sexy-looking lady has an immediate convalescence after some ointment is smeared on her attractive midriff. Well, I admit my midriff is not exactly attractive, but I did hope that the ointment would do some good. My hopes turn out to be pretty ambitious, though !! Wonder if Swami Ramdev could help, human bones and all ;) !!

The process continues:

Wiggle your left shoulder !!

P.S: For those of you who did not understand the oblique reference to 'wiggling', I suggest you watch the 'Kill Bill' series by Quentin Tarantino immediately. You don't know what you are missing, folks !!
